Today, I have another round up of inspiration from the TE Creative Team to share with you that were created with products from this week’s release:
Jen Shults put the dad jokes in action with this pair of cards that she created with the Dad Bod Stamp & Die Combo set. She embossed the dad jokes sentiments with clear embossing powder onto the t-shirts that are cut out from Olive cardstock. The background on the card is stamped using the Denim Background stamp with Blueberry ink on Gumball cardstock and is added to a Toffee cardstock panel that is impressed with a Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets die. I love all of the distressing that Jen did to give the card a grungy, masculine look.
Noriko Fairchild created a whole school of fish on this card created with the Hook, Line, & Sinker Stamp & Stencil Combo set and her color combination was inspired by the set packaging! The fish patterns are stamped with Oreo ink and Noriko stenciled the fish using Candy Corn, Pumpkin, Pineapple, and Gumball inks and cut out the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Stacklets die. The sentiment from the Reely Great Stamp & Die combo set is embossed in white on Oreo Cardstock cut out with the Double-Ended Flag Stacklets dies.
Melody Rupple put together this fun birthday card using the Reely Great Stamp & Die Combo set and Just Keep Swimming stencil! She stenciled the fish in a rainbow of colors with her Blender Brushes for the card background and added the fishing reel that is selectively inked for a multicolored look! The extra fish going across the card design are cut out with the Little Bits – Fish die.
How fun is this shaker card that Kavya created with the Hook, Line, & Sinker Stamp & Stencil Combo set? The fish are created with the Hook, Line, & Sinker Stamp & Stencil Combo set, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added to an oceany background that Kavya created with the Build a Scene – Rolling Waves dies and Just Keep Swimming stencil. Kavya cut a circle out of the background with a Stitched Circle Stacklets die to create the shaker and filled it with Snow Flurries sequins and tiny fish cut out with the Little Bits – Fish die.
This pair of fish themed cards were created by Emily Mydlowski with the Hook, Line, & Sinker Stamp & Stencil Combo set. She embossed the patterns in white and then stenciled the fish in a tropical color combination: Lemon Meringue, Fruit Punch, Plum Punch, and Confetti Cake. The fish are cut out with the coordinating dies and added to backgrounds embossed with the Snowfall embossing folder (it looks like bubbles!) The finishing touch is Bits & Pieces – Clear Drip Drops to add even more bubbles!
